Live results of the show below:
Nikki Roxx defeated Leah Von Dutch. A great, back-and-forth match, and one of the best performances from Von Dutch I’ve seen so far, matching the veteran Roxx hold-for-hold for most of the contest. Roxx got the win with a Barbie Crusher.
Mercedes Martinez defeated Solo Darling. Mercedes got the win with the Fisherman Buster after hitting a low blow on Solo while the referee was talking to Daffney at ringside. Post-match, Nikki Roxx comes out to attack Martinez, only to be thwarted by Leah Von Dutch, who in turn is attacked by Kimberly! Kimberly celebrates in the ring as the next match’s competitors come out.
Nevaeh defeated Leva. Nevaeh picked up the win after a distraction from Sassy Stephie and Jessie Belle. Leva was dressed as a nurse from Silent Hill, and pulled off the costume and mannerisms in fantastically creepy fashion. Definitely one of her best costumes yet. Post-match, Nevaeh stands at the ring entrance with Stephie and Jessie and announces that “the N in “S n’ S” stands for Nevaeh.
Mia Yim defeated Nikki Storm. Storm looked superb on her SHINE debut, portraying her usual cocky, short-fused heel character from the British indies. Yim got the win with a 450 splash, but not before kicking out of everything Storm had to offer. Great outing from both women.
Allysin Kay and Ivelisse defeated Jessicka Havok and Amazing Kong. Kay refused to wrestle Havok throughout the match, tagging in Ivelisse whenever she found herself in the ring with her best friend. The finish came when in a moment of craziness Kay clotheslined Havok by accident, allowing Ivelisse to hit an Enzuigiri for the 3-count. Kay and Havok stared down after the match.
Rain defeated Angelina Love to retain the SHINE Championship. Although Rain was her usual sneaky heel self throughout the match, she got the win in reasonably clean fashion, with the Implant DDT. A solid performance from both women, if a little anti-climatic at the end.
That’s all for our live coverage of SHINE 13! Check back tomorrow for a full review!
